    Yea I don't use firefox because it's faster than ie.
    I use it because it is more secure and is a lot more customisable.

    Yeah, probably not...

    I use FF because I like it.

    I don't have any truck with IE because :
    a/. I see it when fixing other people's computers.
    b/. It doesn't work in Linux. (Seems similar in Windows).
    c/. I don't have to.
    d/. I have tried it.
    Entropy is not what
    it used to be.

    It better do, because I ain't switching from IE7 until they get something better.

    IE8 sucks.
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.
